Twas the Night Before Christmas.....

Twas the Night before Christmas

And all through the house…

Not a creature was stirring….

Not even a Mouse!

It’s time again for another Digistamps4Joy challenge. This time our challenge is going to last for 4 weeks!! That’s right, you have 4 whole weeks to get a project done and enter it. That's because the DT is taking a holiday. The theme this time is It's Christmas…but no mouse in my house! That’s right, we want you to make a project with a Christmas theme, but no animals on it...not even a mouse. And we have a twist this time....everyone who enters a It's Christmas, no mouse card, can enter an Anything Goes card too. The only rule is that the Anything Goes card must have a Digistamps4Joy image.  Now doesn't that sound great?!
The wonderful image that I got to use for this challenge is called Christmas Candle. So I went online to see what I could find to do with this fab image….and I came across a really unique (at least to me) card.
 It’s an Easel card with 2 mini add on’s. And the great thing about it is not only does it look good, but it’s really easy to make. You can find the tutorial for it here

I used a Sketch from Crafty Ann’s Challenge blog for challenge  #54.

So for my base I used black cs from Recollections. The green cs is metallic green and the red dp is Little yellow bicycle Wonder Wishes paper. I colored the image with my Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and oms. The stars on the candle I coloured with my gold metallic Gelly Roll pen and the berry’s of the holly were coloured with my red glitter Gelly Roll pen. I used my SU ticket punch to punch the corners of the dp and used my  Nestibilities Pettite Scalloped Ovals to cut the black cs for behind the image. I’ll have to get back to you on the die I used for the image. The black glittery ribbon is by Celebrate It Holiday Ribbon. As my finishing touches I added a sentiment from Birds Cards, and some holly and poinsettia’s from K&Company. I also traced the edges of my die cut image with my red glitter Gelly Roll pen.
I hope that you'll head on over to Digistamps4Joy challenge blog and join us in this fun new challenge. And while you're there, check out the marvelous creations that my fellow teamies have created. You won't be disappointed.
